Atalanta B.C defeated Bayer Leverkusen by 3-0 in the UEFA Europa League 2023-24 final to clinch their first-ever Europa League title. This is their first major trophy since 1963 as Ademola Lookman became the first-ever player to score a hat-trick in UEFA Europa League final. 

This means it is now an end to Xabi Alonso's 51-match unbeaten run in the 2023-24 season. Moreover, their dream of a European Treble is now over as well. 

With this Europa League title, Gian Piero Gasperini has become the ninth different Italian coach to have won the UEFA Cup or Europa League. Moreover, at 66 years and 117 days, he's also the oldest winning coach of all in the Europa League era, beating José Luis Mendilibar (who was 62 years and 78 days old when he won the tournament with Sevilla last season).

    "Honestly, we're not interested in the unbeaten record. We didn't care about that from the start. It's about the game and unfortunately we lost a final today. That's football. We said yesterday that it would be a difficult game. Compliments to Atalanta."

    "I think we wrote history, also for the way we won it. It was just extraordinary, we defeated Liverpool, Sporting who won the championship. When we faced Liverpool they were first in the Premier League... And now the German champions. Incredible The boys were extraordinary, a memorable performance."

    Question

    Would Lookman have started this game if captain De Roon was not injured? Probably not, as Koopmeiners would have played up front instead. The beauty of football

    What a strike from who? Adamole Lookman and it is a historic hat-trick for the Nigerian. This is the first-ever hat-trick in the UEFA Europa League final. He receives the ball from Scamacca on the left and after a neat first touch takes the ball on his left foot and goes past Tapsoba for the glory. It's nearly the end of Alonso's dream run.

    Half-time | ATA 2-0 LEV

    It was a dreamy first half for Atalanta and Adamole Lookman. They lead by 2-0 in the first half and surely, Xabi Alonso would have some changes to make in the second half; at least in terms of tactics.

    Brilliant start for Atalanta. It is Ademola Lookman who puts the Italian side up front. Zappacosta with the cross after a corner from the goal scorer. Lookman was able to get the better off Palacios to receive the ball and shoot from close range. Huge goal for Atalanta.
